The success of Rhapsody in Blue in 1924 allowed George Gershwin to travel to Europe and to meet a number of composers that he admired during a stay in Paris. Stravinsky, Ravel, Poulenc, Milhaud gave the American musician their recognition and encouragement. An American in Paris, composed in 1928, is a symphonic poem of about twenty minutes hailed by the critic Isaac Goldberg as being an “American Afternoon of a Faun”. Contrary to most cases, An American in Paris was not a Broadway show adapted into a movie to touch a wider audience.  Such a flagship of the genre being missing from the stage, Jean-Luc Choplin, associated with the Broadway producers Van Kaplan and Stuart Oken, are filling in the gap with this production.
